sell-side bonuses are based on a percent of your salary. Generally, in a normal year a back-office position can expect between 15% - 25% of their salary as a bonus. In a bad year it could be less and in a good year it could be more.

I would say that's fairly on point assuming bulge bracket, also if ur an analyst or associate it could be lower 10-15 but generally 15-25 is on point. I made about 25 percent when I was a vp

I don't have buy side exp but I would say it's probably a lot higher assuming the firm does well

So you're saying graduate from wealth management compliance lol. I really enjoy it though. I'll take the relative pay cut for time being. Still living well. Plus I much rather be doing AML for wealth mgmt then the above bc w the new rules fully applying. Have fun with that. X is on your back now.
